Brooke
Brooke

My name is Brooke Leavitt. I come from a small town in Nevada where I grew up on a 27 acre ranch. Growing up on a ranch, I learned how to be a hard worker and to not be afraid to get messy. I have two older brothers and an older sister, and lots of animal family members! I'm a huge animal lover. I love to spend time with family and be the best Aunt that I can be to my two nieces. My number one hobby has always been dancing. I love all styles, but Hip Hop and Jazz are my favorites. I love to listen to music, go on hikes, watch movies, and cooking.

I've worked with children of all ages for 11 years, and I absolutely love it. I am currently pursuing a degree in HDFS to become a Occupational Therapist. I hope to become certified in special education as well. Working with children has been my passion since I was old enough to have a job! I couldn't imagine having any other type of career.

Raymond
Raymond

Hi! My name is Raymond, and I am a Math and Music dual major at the University of Nevada, Reno. I grew up about an hour east of here in a small town called Fallon where I had my first tutoring job. I graduated from Churchill County High School in May of 2017 where I was fortunate enough to not only earn a High School Diploma, but also an Associates of Arts Degree through a rigorous dual-enrollment program at my local community college. Now, I'm pursuing my goal of ultimately working for Disney by going to school and working part-time as a College Tutor. I believe that the valuable experiences I get from tutoring will not only help me achieve my goals, but will also prove to be successful in helping any of my clients become confident, independent learners. Besides having an ability and a desire to help others, I also enjoy being outdoors, golfing, playing the piano, and eating ice cream!
